Absolutely gorgeous, Lisa! What brand and model machine do you use? I am inspired to get one!!

Lisa, I'm inspired! I have not even had the embroidery module for my machine out of its case in years. Classes at a local shop seem so advanced for me. I hope to learn from you and then execute some of the ideas I had. Thank you!

That is absolutely beautiful. I didn't know they had sewing machines for home, that did such detailed work. (I guess my old Kenmore that I have used to death, is my reason for not looking for new machines!) Thank you for sharing.

Hi Lisa, I love Jacobean designs and your pillow will look so beautiful when finished. A true work of art. I have a few questions. First, what embroidery machine are you using? Second, I'm wondering why you did not hoop your fabric? I personally like to float my top fabric, but in looking at what you are using plus the design density, I'm surprised you didn't hoop it. Did you use adhesive to keep it in place? Since you are doing multiple designs, do you find it easier to get correct placement by floating your fabric? Thanks!

Oooh, how exciting Lisa! I love my embroidery machine, but I haven't done much with it in the last few years. I did do a Jacobean table runner years ago that I still love, although mine was more of an applique design. The stitches in your design are gorgeous! I'll be looking forward to reading more about machine embroidery here!

Beautiful work!

I am SO super excited about this column Lisa!! I love to embroider too but am still pretty novice at using my machine. We need to have a creative "retreat!!!".
